We´ve seen the Tecnifibre Air Endurance Squash bags regularly on the PSA World Tour broadcasts. These bags are the choice of the two best squash players in the world: Mohamed Elshorbagy and Nour el Sherbini. Both are the holders of the leading positions in the world rankings and the world championships titles.
Tecnifibre, which has distinguished itself for years by developing racket bags exclusively for squash, has once again succeeded in designing perfect, solid bags with many innovative features to meet the requirements of the most demanding users.
What is new about the Tecnifibre Air Endurance Squash Bags?
New technologies such as the 'All In One Carrying System', 'Speed Ventilation' and the 'Rip Stop Fabric' make the Tecnifibre Air Endurance Squash bags trend-setting. To begin with, Tecnifibre has dedicated time to analyse the carrier system and created the 'All In One Carrying System'. The padded and reinforced shoulder straps have kind of notches which ensure that you can comfortably carry the Tecnifibre Air Endurance squash bags in different ways: over your shoulder, as a backpack or in your hand. This is great because on the way to the squash court you might want to carry your bag as a backpack, but once there you can quickly pick up the bag or throw it over your shoulder as you walk from the dressing room to the courts. We´re already familiar with the 'Speed Ventilation' from the Tecnifibre Squash Green collection. This successful ventilation system ensures optimum air circulation in the bag and prevents the bag from stinking due to sweaty clothing and shoes. The 'Rip Stop Fabric' refers to the extremely sturdy, wear-resistant and water-repellent material of which the bags are made. Thanks to this innovative material your valuable rackets are optimally protected and your bag will last much longer.
There are four types of Tecnifibre Air Endurance Squash bags. I´ll give you a short introduction to each one so that you can easily compare the different bags. The first one, the Tecnifibre Air Endurance 9R, is a spacious racket bag with two main compartments, a separate shoe compartment and a zipper pocket for small accessories. The second one, the Tecnifibre Air Endurance 12R, is its “big brother”. This is the ideal bag if you play competitions or want to take a lot of stuff with you to the court. The 12R has three main compartments, an integrated shoe compartment and zip pockets on both sides. Unique to this bag is the so-called 'squash box', a foam rubber box where you can store three squash balls and a squash mask. The third bag in the collection, the Tecnifibre Air Endurance Backpack, is a functional backpack with handy features such as two special side pockets for squash balls and an integrated spectacle case at the top of the bag. This compartment is covered with thick velvet material, so that you can always store your glasses scratch-free and well protected. This is the perfect place to store your squash goggles, normal glasses or sunglasses.
Last but not the least, the collection includes the long-awaited Tecnifibre Air Endurance Rackpack which is my personal favourite. This bag is unique in its kind and I haven´t come across such a bag before. This Rackpack is a racket bag in which every part of your squash outfit has its own place. If you unzip the Tecnifibre Air Endurance Rackpack, you´ll see that the bag has one main compartment divided into a maximum of five main compartments. What´s special is that you can reduce the number of main compartments to three in order to fit rackets in all compartments. If you take four or less rackets with you, you can use the other two main compartments for clothes, a towel or a bottle, for example. Making the boxes bigger or smalles is very easy with small pieces that you attach with a Velcro. The thickened edges of this box offer your rackets optimal protection. On the inside of the top of the bag there are two large, dust-proof pockets. These are suitable for small accessories such as grips, balls and strings, and of course your valuables. Because these bags are transparent, you can find what you are looking for at a glance. The Tecnifibre Air Endurance Rackpack also has an integrated shoe compartment. And it wouldn´t be Tecnifibre if this extra-spacious box wasn´t especially designed for two pairs of shoes. This brings me to my last point on why I like this bag so much: thanks to its layout and the space it offers, this bag is also perfect for the gym. Many squash players like to go to the gym to complete their workout and in this bag it´s easy to carry another pair of shoes, suitable for fitness workout, with you.
The Tecnifibre Air Endurance Squash bags are part of the new Tecnifibre Carboflex X-Speed Squash Rackets series that has been brought to the market at the same time. Both Mohamed Elshorbagy and Nour el Sherbini have achieved great success with the Tecnifibre Carboflex 125 X-Speed and the Tecnifibre Carboflex 125 NS X-Speed rackets.
